I was one of the last two participants sitting on the grass at the podium this weekend. I had to shoot you a note to thank you and your crew for a great event. I did it on a lark, which is how I did my first triathlon, my first double century, my first marathon, even my first Iron Man. As an event, the Mt. Evans Hill Climb was on par with any of those in terms of challenge. My friend and I enjoyed both the race and the party. Being from Santa Fe, sitting on a lawn is a rare treat, plus the soundtrack was good, and the patter fun and good natured.
